2013 F350 Gross Vehicle Weight

I have to purchase my permanent tag for my 2013 F350 4x4 with the 6.2 and the tag office will need to know the gross vehicle weight. I checked the sticker on the inside of the door panel and it states 11,300lbs.
I assume this is the GVW and what the tag office will need, correct?
Thanks

That is probably the GVWR, meaning the max weight it's rated to carry. The GVW is most likely the actual weight empty which is another story. Normally the manufacturer provides this info in the MSO before title is applied for. Better find out what number they want, as there will be a 5000LB difference at least. All this info is plainly written in paper when you go to get plates and no need for you to know. F350 with 11,300 GVWR? Well things have gone up,up,up over the years. Mine is 9200.

11,300 is the gross vehicle weight rating. You should also have a payload rating sticker on your door (probably around 3000-4000lbs). To find the weight of the truck you can subtract the payload rating from the GVWR.

Judithgap-

Your one of the first posters I've seen with a 2013. How are you liking your 2013 6.2L so far? Seen in previous posts the 6.2L are getting around 14mpg highway which is not too bad for the big super duty. Just a personal preference, but I've always liked the stance the F350 has over the F250. Nice choice.

So far I love it. Traded an 08 6.4 F250 for it about a month ago (no more regens).
I replaced the factory 275/70/18's with 295/70/18 Nitto Terra Grapplers and really like the look. Truck was ordered with the camper package and 4.30 rearend. Milage is running 14.5 to 15 on the open road and 9.5 to 10.5 around town. Really stout and a lot of power for a gasser.

Thanks for the info! From the sound of that the F350 must be a real beast with the 6.2 and 4.30's!
